Jaime Foxx’s NAACP Entertainer of the Year award acceptance speech — deemed “moving” by Hollywood.com — has the actor and musician under much scrutiny. One man’s genuine words are another’s offensive statement!

Jaime Foxx is under fire from conservatives for declaring, “Black people are the most talented people in the world.”

How do you feel about Foxx’s powerful statement? Let us know in the comment section below!
